Here’s my piece for the The Truth Is Out There X Files themed gallery at Meltdown Comics in LA. The opening will be on December 6th, so stop by and check it out in person!
I’m a huge fan of the X Files and had fun combing through the series for an ideal moment to capture. This piece references one of my favorite moments from the series in the season 7 episode “All Things”. I initially liked the episode because of its style and tone, and its themes of buddhism and the collective consciousness. I later realized this episode was actually written and directed by Gillian Anderson herself, so those thematic and stylistic choices I dug so much came from her (including the use of Moby’s “The Sky is Broken” in this scene).
Finally, I apologize if the lettering on the apothecary sign doesn’t say anything (or says something nonsensical). I copied the characters as best I could from the screen shot, but I don’t actually know how to read or write them.
